    She should be executed, like Nora Paraham. Because that was a vicious murder. Hang her, because I know we don’t have the electric chair in belize, take her to the spot, where she murdered her friend, and hang her until she is dead. No mercy for her or her accomplice

    Just so sad,,young lady you need to rot in jail..what would make you take another innocent person’s life…my heart goes out to my aunt..we send our love to her and the family all the way from the US..

  4. Condolences to all suffering in this, another of Belize’es self destructive act. Anyone care to ask or wonder “what a seventeen and sixteen year old are doing out at clubs as that time of the night?” Hope this tragedy will cause other parents and guardian to take a step back and stop allowing their teenagers to run their homes.
